It is a volcanic island dominated by Mount Epomeo, enjoy the view as you travel across the Bay of Naples by hydrofoil and discover the enchantment of Ischia. For a small island, it has many faces and all of them beautiful. This little bit of paradise is sure to enchant. Ischia is also an important spa town famous for its water. The Aragonese Castle, easily considered Ischia’s most famous historical monument, stands on a volcanic rock connected to the island by a bridge first built in 1438, an impressive site and a not to be missed photo opportunity.
